The Hand of Fatima | 2009
A double portrait of a rock critic and his favorite band. Robert Palmer was America's pre-eminent music writer, best known for his book "Deep Blues" and his work for the "New York Times." The Master Musicians of Jajouka are a hereditary Moroccan brotherhood who play music older than history, but have also jammed with Ornette Coleman and Sonic Youth. Using Robert Palmer's writing about the band as a guide, Palmer's daughter Augusta set out for Morocco in 2005 hoping to find out what happened when her father first met the Master Musicians on assignment for "Rolling Stone" in 1971.
